Fuck the Millennium“, sometimes “***k the Millennium”, is a protest song by 2K—Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty. The duo are better known as the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu (the JAMs) or the KLF. The song was built around the KLF and Acid Brass‘s versions of “What Time Is Love?”, and premiered at 2K’s “1997” event, held at London’s Barbican Centre on 17 September 1997 and directed by Ken Campbell. 2K’s lifespan was billed as the duration of the live event’s performance—23 minutes. The song was released as a comeback single to mark the tenth anniversary of Drummond and Cauty’s first collaborations; however, the performance and single were also in part intended to mock the notion of the comeback. The song reached number 28 in the UK Singles Chart in October 1997. Drummond and Cauty’s promotional campaign also involved plans to construct a 150-foot-high (46 m) pyramid from bricks; it was never built. (Full article…)
